Remember Star Wars Rogue Squadron 2: Rogue Leader for GameCube? Remember how it's still one of the best Star Wars games EVER made? Well ride along with three of the original developers as they watch this fantastic speedrun by DaymanAAA and tell incredible stories about what it was like to make the game.

Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader is an action game developer by Factor 5 and LucasArts. It was released for Nintendo GameCube back in November 2001. The game spans all three movies in the original Star Wars trilogy, and you play as either Luke Skywalker or Wedge Antilles.

It was all the talk at my high school. The technical make up was fascinating, effects before their time SSS, bump mapping , volumetrics. Advanced culling . It was one of my launch games.

The visuals for Rogue Leader blew my mind. I'd kill for a re-release of this and the sequel.

You got to hope that Rogue Leaders will find its way to the Switch. I've been waiting on it for years. Interesting video, though they didn't really do much reaction, more of a history.
